Product Description

Product Description

Friday (New Line Platinum Serie

Amazon.ca

Friday is the rarest specimen of African American cinema: a 'hood movie refreshingly free of the semiseriousness and moralism of shoot 'em up soaps such as Boyz N the Hood, yet still true to the inner-city experience.

Scripted by rapper Ice Cube, Friday is a no-frills tale of a typical day in the life of a pair of African American youth in South Central. Cube plays Craig, a frustrated teen who endures the ultimate humiliation: getting fired on his day off. Then unknown Chris Tucker plays Smokey, a marijuana-worshipping homeboy whose love for the green stuff lands him in predicament after predicament.

Sitting on the stoop of Craig's rundown home, the two hilariously confront a kaleidoscopic array of gangbangers, weed dealers, crack heads, prostitutes, scheming girlfriends, and neighborhood bullies--all of whom, it should be noted, come off as sympathetic even as they are being caricatured, a true achievement in the crass, "booty call" environment of '90s African American comedy. --Ethan Brown --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

"Ain't nobody out here man I don't even know why I'm trippin, Don't nobody wanna mess wit da Smoke Dog Rooo Rooo, roooo rooo, Roooo Roooo!....who dat?!?"
"It ain't dem niccas that act hard...."
"Oh SHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!"
Man this movie is hands down the greatest comedy I have ever seen. Even when it turns serious and they are about to get smoked it is still funny. And when Craig was finna get beat up by Deebo, the classic line that makes me laugh everytime comes up "yeah put that gun down Craig and get knocked out like ya father used to!"
There are so many memorable lines and scenes that it would be useless to try and go through them all cause I would end up reciting the whole movie. My favorite parts however are when REd gets knocked out by Deebo and the father gets out the car.
"YOu want some of this too old man huh!"
"NO!!!!!!!get yo a$$ up boy and get in this car, I told you bout messing around with these people!"
My other favorite part is when Craig is high and he's talking to Debbie on the couch, and he turns and sees little puppie dogs staring at him and he goes "What the FHFG! man i'm trippin"
Another part when it's getting dark and Smokey and craig are trying to come up with a plan and Smokey says:
"Alright here's what we gon do, I'ma give you the gun, then I'ma go to my house and chill, you sit here on the porch and wait for dem niccas and later on you call me and tell me what happened!"
THis movie is funny from beginning (Jehovah's Witnesses and No Milk) to end ("I don't wanna die...Hey craig I love you man") and is very memorable. The performances were excellent, the cast was excellent. Even the concept of letting the plot come to them as they sit on the porch all day and do nothing is excellent. The music and soundtrack was also excellent. The movie is excellent. A Must have.

You can't go wrong with this movie. While there wasn't much of a plot, the action and the humor made you forget about all that. The cast alone makes this the best out of the entire series of movies, but what really makes this movie stand out from the other three was the impact it had. Ice Cube was brilliant as Craig, Chris Tucker stole the show as Smokey, and Tiny Lister became America's favorite bully (and in some places, his name is slang for bully now) as Deebo. And the rest of the lineup was perfect too. You had John Witherspoon (Mr. Jones), Bernie Mac (The Reverend), Faizon Love (Big Perm, I mean, Big Worm), and who could forget the hilarious A.J. Johnson (Ezell)? You can sift through the entire movie and find one liners and dialogue that people STILL use today. You can't say that about the other two movies. Even though Next Friday and Friday After Next are funny in their own way, they will never come close to the original. When I first saw it, I laughed so hard that I started crying. Even the opening scene was hilarious (when the Jehovah's Witnesses get the door slammed in their faces). I can watch this movie everyday for a week and still find it just as funny as the first time I saw it. If you haven't seen it by now, then you must not want to see it. Go out and get it, you'll love it. Trust me.

While each Next Friday and Friday After Next may have had their moments, when it comes to overall greatness, you just can't beat the original Friday. Ice Cube did a good job portraying Craig Jones, and of course, Chris Tucker was HILARIOUS as Craig's best friend Smokey. In fact, people were still repeating Smokey's lines years after the movie came out, like: "When you gonna let me F, Ms. Parker?" or "And you know this...MAN!" or everyone's favorite: "You got knocked the F out!" (That even made me laugh when I wrote it.) It was also good to enjoy John Witherspoon as Craig's father, especially because that was before he became overexposed by being thrown into practically every bad Black movie (Soul Plane, anyone?).
I only gave this four stars because of two things: 1) although the movie is funny, there really isn't much of a plot, and 2) now that I think about it, the scene with Mr. Jones in the bathroom WAS kind of disgusting. But Friday is still a great movie, and it's a lot better than either of the sequels -- and it doesn't help that most of the main characters from this movie aren't even in the other movies (Mike Epps is funny, but let's face it; he's no Chris Tucker). If you're one of the few people who haven't seen this movie yet, grab some snacks, a nice seat of the couch, and pop it in.

Yo "Friday" is the bomb. I use 2 favor "Next Friday" over dis, but after watchin it over and over again dis movie is da s***. Chris Tucker is crazy funny. "You's got to be stupid to get fired on yo day off" Love that lol. Craig is a young man who gets fired from his job. He spends most of the day being unemployed with his goofy, non witted homey, Smokey, who like a dumby deals drugs and gets high off his own supply. All day they chill in their hood and sit their a** on da front porch watchin the world go by them. Might think it's a dumb idea for a movie but da things that go on are hilarious. Watchin Craig and Smokey try to scrap up hundreds and hundreds of dollars to pay Smokey's boss after a mishap is da funniest thing. Another funny scene is when Craig's love interest(Nia Long, who gets me a long) tries to hook up Smokey with one of her girlfriends. When Smokey talks 2 her on da horn she claims dat she looks like Janet Jackson. Who knew Janet Jackson was 400 pounds and bald? MAdd Funny! "There's a deli down the street, i know your hungry!" There are so many unforgettable funny characters in here like d-bo, dat crack head guy "I steal, I don't kill.", felicia, and the pastor (Bernie Mack). IF your interested in watchin some chick get screwed by some French dude, see "UnfaithfuL". If your interested in some high suspense street drama catch "Juice". ANd if your interseted in laughin till you you feel a painful sensation from 2 much dumbness watch "Friday". 1
